Proposals to build an incinerator in Hoddesdon have been dealt a blow “at the 11th hour”. The Secretary of State has called in Veolia’s plans for an “energy recovery facility” in Ratty’s Lane just a week before Hertfordshire County Council was due to make a decision on whether to grant planning permission. It means the council can only “form a view” on the plans or refuse permission at its meeting on Wednesday next week (December 20).
An arson attack on an office building caused damage worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. Police have released CCTV images of three people they want to speak to in connection with the fire in Birchanger. An office building was set on fire in Sion Park in Birchanger Lane at around 2.25am on Tuesday, November 21. No-one was injured, but it caused a damage worth a six-figure sum and it is being treated as arson.
Dozens of classrooms and a new library have been officially opened at the John Warner School in Hoddesdon. Broxbourne MP Charles Walker cut the ribbon on a plaque commemorating the occasion on Friday (December 8) in the presence of governors, staff, students and guests. The library and maths, English and humanities centres, together hosting 36 new classrooms, are part of £15 million of building work at John Warner and have already been in use since the beginning of the academic year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
